Joshua 17-18 B

Carly addressed the inheritance of the daughters of Zelophehad last time.

It may be a bit dry, reading through all these boarder descriptions, but it’s actually remarkable they are included here.

“Do not move the ancient boundary Which your fathers have set.” (Proverbs‬ ‭22:28‬)

Inevitably, people will argue as to what was who’s, as memories fade and debts creep in. In the year of Jubilee, everyone will be expected to forgive debts and return to their original allotment of land. How will people know what belonged to who? His word against mine?

These original boundaries became included in Israel’s Scripture with descriptions of landmarks for such a time as that.

I find it endlessly gracious of the LORD that He included so many reset buttons. He knows our propensity toward chaos, and planned accordingly. Much of what He teaches us, through His word, is how to restore things. Make them right again.

Is there a relationship or circumstance in your life in need of restoration? Speak with the LORD about it, today, and look to what you can do, with His Spirit leading, to set things right.
